nuts. >>> the irs. yes, the internal revenue service, is behind this "star trek" movie starring tax collectors and it's getting backlash. first, we start with developing news at this hour. secretary of state john kerry made a surprise visit to baghdad earlier today where he spoke to prime minister nuri al maliki. secretary kerry is now in amman, jordan, and so is chief foreign affairs correspondents andrea mitchell, traveling with the secretary of state. she joins us by phone now. andrea, what did secretary kerry accomplish with this trip to baghdad? >> reporter: well, it was a very tough trip and a tough message, because we went to baghdad, a quick visit. surprise, under tight security and secrecy, for obvious reasons, because ten years ar the war, there still are terror attacks. last week, when dozens were killed in baghdad. he was in a secure place in the embassy and then visiting prime minister maliki and the speaker of the parliament in iraq in their residences, but his message to mallski that the maliki government is permits iran to send weapons and fighters, overflight, loade
the president wanted. >> well, he got his revenue. he has gotten his revenue. obama care has 21 new taxes. my goodness. i'd like to get rid of obama care in total and rid of those taxes. you've got to look at some of these other components of the problem. and you cannot tax your way out of this. i quite frankly liked the op-ed in "the wall street journal" today that showed our budget with the stablization pulling back on all of those spending components and putting ourselves in a position of growth would give us household income growth of $1500 in 2014 and $4,000 per household within this ten-year window. and what we're saying is, you've got to get this under control. now, the president wants to continue to spend and put new spending in place by getting new revenues. that's not workable. the american people don't want that. they want to see some spending restraints, some control, some common sense brought to bear in this budget process. >> congresswoman, i want to get you on the record about senator rand paul coming out in support of comprehensive immigration reform. right now it looks like r
they do support raising tax, only on the wealthy americans but esensely, what's changed, they didn't pass a budget for four years, any budget threat they passed would have included a tax increase and felt vulnerable in the campaign. well, president obama got re-elected by promising a tax increase on high-income americans to reduce the deficit. so now, finally, senate democrats feel that they can go ahead and echo that position. that's change. >> an narc the president is expected to release the white house budget in april. what kind of compromises, if any, can we expect to see there? >> i think he is going to kind of come up and say the same things that he has been saying. we will look at the changes he will make to the entitlement program. the republicans saying they will not raise tax and what the democrats might do on entitlement reforms if they can find any kind of common ground that would be possible there. >> bill schneider, anna palmer, stick around. we would like to come back to you later in the hour, if that's okay with you. >> sure. >> thanks. >>> could bill clinton be talking ou
just that, alex. being nuanced in whether he's talking about drones, tax reform -- he's always been very nuanced to make sure he has -- and people starting to realize a wider vision for his own political career and that's exactly why he didn't mention specifically pathway to citizenship. what's interesting, though, prior to that a.p. story i can share with you that the chatter was he was going to talk about pathway to citizenship. so i might -- you know, the big question is, did he back away from that after he heard the chatter and heard that individuals were not welcoming it in the extreme part of the party. let's be clear. short of a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumenteds, the republican party is still going to have a latino vote problem. what's going to happen, unless we provide a pathway to citizenship eventually, what's going to happen is every day american latinos are going to always have a question mark when they interact with every day americans when people are going to ask them, are you here as an american citizen or a legal resident? >> well, this is becoming
check, paying taxes, penalty, learning english, and going to the back of the line behind everyone else trying to come here legally. real reform requires modernizing the legal immigration system so our citizens don't have to wait years before their loved ones are able to join them in america, and so that we are attracting the highly scheduled entrepreneurs and engineers to help create good paying jobs and grow our economy. so let's get this done. and let's do it in a way that keeps pace with our history and values. no other country welcomes as many new arrivals as us. and as long as the promise of america endures, as long as we continue to stand tall as a beacon of hope and opportunity, then the world's hardest workers, the hungriest entrepreneurs, the men and women that are willing to make enormous sacrifices to get a better life not just for themselves but for their children and their grandchildren, they're going to keep on coming, and like the millions who came before and like the 28 americans who are here today, they will bring with them new hopes, new dreams, new ideas, new optimis
